Ed Brown Products, Inc. has announced a new carry pistol, the Compact 1911.
The Compact is based on an Officer's-sized frame with a Commander-length slide (4.25") and a shorter frame. But don't let its small exterior fool you: It's still a workhorse on the inside, using 100 percent Ed Brown fully machined premium components, and hand-fitted to the Ed Brown forged frame and slide. The frontstrap and mainspring housing are checkered at 25 LPI, and a fixed black rear sight and red fiber-optic up front make for a high-visibility front sight. Checkered laminate wood grips complete the model for a traditional aesthetic.
